A London manifesto for housing in later life



Assisted Living

Our Assisted Living (Extra Care) model is designed for frailer older

homeowners and is built to full wheelchair housing standards.

It is a unique offering in the market place and provides an attractive

alternative to residential care.

Assisted Living is designed exclusively for customers aged 70 and over. The product includes additional

features to our Retirement Living range, including a personal care service, a full table-service restaurant

with meals prepared freshly on-site, plus a function room and secure mobility scooter store room.

The Estates Management team is on-hand 24 hours a day to provide care and support as well as

facilitate social events and activities. Assisted Living is an attractive alternative for those seeking

an additional level of help but who wish to retain independent home ownership and do not want

to move into residential care.
